The biopic The Patriot Yue Fei <精忠岳飛>, produced by Stanley Tong (唐季禮) and directed by Gaau Leung Guk (鞠覺亮), released its first trailer earlier this month, showing off the wide-ranging cast of characters and the impressive but costly battle scenes. The trailer was accompanied by the drama’s theme song, “The Sound of Rain Without Rest” <瀟瀟雨未歇>, a duet between Emil Chau (周華健) and Tarcy Su (蘇慧倫).

The Patriot Yue Fei, which is slated to begin airing on July 4, will cover the life of Song Dynasty general Yue Fei, played by mainland Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming (黃曉明). The trailer offers viewers a glimpse of Yue Fei’s life experiences, as well as the intricately designed sets, props, and costumes. Preparations for the drama lasted almost ten years, since the use of historical written accounts was necessary to present an appropriate biography of the esteemed general.

Additionally, the trailer shows off The Patriot Yue Fei’s star-studded cast, which includes mainland Chinese actors Wu Xiubo (吳秀波) and Shao Bing (邵兵) as high-ranking military officials Gao Chong and Han Shizhong. Also shown are Taiwanese actress Ruby Lin (林心如) as Yue Fei’s wife, mainland Chinese actress Viann Zhang (張馨予) as Han Shizhong’s wife, and mainland Chinese actress Cecilia Liu (劉詩詩) as Gao Chong’s wife.

The theme song’s lyrics are based off the famous poem “Seething in Anger” <滿江紅•怒髮衝冠>, which was written by Yue Fei to express his loyalty to his country. Composed by Emil and Stanley, and penned by famed lyricists Zhan Demao (詹德茂) and Jonathan Lee (李宗盛), “The Sound of Rain Without Rest” beautifully combines Emil and Tarcy’s voices, while revealing both the boldness and gentleness of Yue Fei.

      pandamao,
      I’m also an Emil fan. Although listening to him sing at one of the Lunar New Year celebrations in China, he seems to have lost a bit of strength in his voice.

        Jayne,
        Many people lose strength in their voice as they get older, especially if they don’t take care of themselves and do drugs. I don’t think Emil does, does he??

        Emil is purely old age. He seems to be a down to earth guy and don’t come off as someone into drugs.

        Jayne – His voice is not as rich but I think he doesn’t have to be either. His theme song for condor heros was pretty good and that song was pretty much speed. LOL

        There are many new and down to earth actors such as Felix Wong for example, but yet he smokes. It is not to say that people who are nice don’t smoke or vice versa.

        HTS –

        I jumped to the drugs part and missed ur comment on “taking care” of himself .. yeah, smoking would count as not taking care of oneself.

      I’ve listened to many versions of 天涯歌女 but for me, none can surpass the original singer’s (周璇) versions with that irreplicable 1930s flavor (the mournful tune + the cheerful one)

      Don’t know why but I find it weird to hear 天涯歌女 or 月亮代表我的心, for that matter, sang by a male singer.

        Clamine – i get what you are saying too

        But for me, i really need the song quality there even if the voice is not as great .. 🙁 preference i guess.

        The moon represent my heart belongs to one person and one person only!

        i do want to add, faye took ownership of 但願人長久

    Jayne – another one of my fave = Richie Ren but we don’t have much news about him on here…

    He’s so versatile and underrated. I find him good at almost everything he does!

      Pandamao,
      Richie Ren seems pretty low profile lately, but I can keep an eye out for his news.

      Many oldies but goodies on the radar. 🙂

        I was going to ask about Richie too. What is doing nowadays? He is another rare talent that I miss seeing. I love his song “Hua Tai Xiang”.

        what song is hua tai xiang? I can’t translate it .. flower too fragrant?

        Hua Tai Xiang is the title of themesong for Chu Liu Xiang. Here is the title in Chinese characters “花太香”. Do you know which song I am referring to now??

        My favorite Emil songs are from the 1990s. The lyrics are quite meaningful.

    Digressing here, but my current favorite song for now is 白狐 by 陳瑞http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6_crhRRHPE

    I love 陳瑞’s voice and her singing, though her songs may be too similar in melody.

      I really like the lyrics 🙂 Not so much the story line but the character choice used.

      Thanks Clamine.

    Love the song, it’s been awhile since i heard such quality song for an ancient series, usually they have rap incorporated or it just sound so techno or crazy beats. I am looking forward to this series, it looks like a good production and not to mention lots of my fav artist are in here.
